Remembering Anton Yelchin


It’s been a long sad year without Anton Yelchin. The actor died on this day, exactly one year a go, and world is still mourning the loss of one such talent at such a young age (he was 27 years old).

The only child of Russian figure skater immigrants, Anton failed to achieve greatness in his parent’s profession, and turned his passion for acting into a profession at an early age. One of his early TV roles were in hit shows like ER, Judging Amy and at just 12 years of age he shared the screen with the acting legends Morgan Freeman (in Along Came Spider) and with Sir Antony Hopkins in Hearts in Atlantis.

It would take him years of hard work to make it to the mainstream audience, but when he did with the role of Pavel Chekov in 2009’s Star Trek there was no going back for Anton. From then on he collaborated with directors like Jodie Foster and Jim Jarmush, and at the time of his death he left several features with a posthumous releases.

Anton is surely going to be missed in the years to come, and at this sad memory of his untimely death, I’d love to express my condolences to his family and friends.

I would also like to look back at some of his projects (both of film and on TV), as fond memories of a talent taken way too soon.
